I am staying at this hotel right now and this dog has been crying for hours. I am on the 7th floor and it is keeping me awake. The overall hotel is nice but I would reconsider the pet policy. Oh good, now it's barking loud and sounds like it is directly outside my door. One and done for me.

Picked this room up off hotels.com, and it was the cheapest on a Wednesday night. I stay in Houston frequently and I prefer the Galleria area. The staff was incredibly friendly, the rooms were clean, and its not too far off the main galleria area. Its a bit overpriced, but that is Houston mid week. Rooms are very small, but... More

If you can book it at the right price it's the best place in the Galleria area. There's other high end hotels in the area but this place just has a cool vibe to it. The staff is great and very friendly, the rooms are nice size, beds are great, internet is fast, just a very relaxing place. Has a... More

The staff was very pleasant. Rooms were nice but plain Ikea styled. Clothes hangers were cheap and fell apart when I hug up my clothing. No cook to order food available. ReFuel was where you could get some hot food but the nuked offerings were minimal and overpriced. There are some places within walking distance to eat. The Galleria Mall... More

Great service! Very nice, modern style, hotel. Easy access to the Galleria and other activities. The hotel had a really nice pool area for relaxing and a chill bar to hang out at in the lobby. They also have a pool table and patio area for those who like to be outside.

I've stayed here a few times for business. The rooms are very nice with a very contemporary feel. I found the rooms to be not overly sound proof, I can hear people in other rooms or street noises more than other hotels. They don't have a restaurant on site but they do have a small bar which is nice. The... More

Recently stayed at the Aloft in Houston for business. It's a great location, close to lots of places to eat and the Galleria if you want to shop. I've wanted to stay here before, but my company always balked at the price, in comparison to other hotels. But, there was a deal available and I got to try it out.... More
